Personal Trainer: “Give me one more. Come on. I know you can do it. Push! Push!”
And I did another one. Legs burning. Arms burning. Heart rate anaerobic. Body shutting down. But I did another one.
Personal Trainer: “I’ve worked with a lot of people wanting to get into better shape. And there is one thing that consistently separates those who achieve their goals and those who do not: push. Trying to do just one more, working just a bit harder, always digging deep to make that extra bit of effort.”
Although his comments were in the context of an exercise session, I thought his words applied to other challenges in life.
And I pushed hard last night.
No pain, no gain.
